It's been a bit quiet about 3D, or stereoscopic images, in video. But it seems that a glasses-free display technology has recently become available that actually works well. The 32" SR Pro display from Dutch manufacturer Dimenco works with eye and face tracking to give the viewer an exact stereoscopic view of the images, and hand tracking also makes it possible to manipulate objects.
Dimenco SR Pro
Depending on how you move your head in front of the screen, the perspective of what is shown changes -- and apparently so convincingly that it won an Innovation Award at CES 2022 and recently an almost effusive review at Petapixel. The immersive "Simulated Reality", as Dimenco calls it, is created with the help of a 1.5mm thin lenticular lens layer (but 2D content can also be displayed).
The new SR Pro display is said to be 400 nits bright and supports 8K at 60 fps, as well as 100% Adobe RGB, 100% sRGB, 100% Rec709 and 98% DCI-P3 in terms of color representation. The ideal viewing distance is 60 ± 20 cm, the viewing angle ± 30°. The following formats are supported by the display according to the FAQ:
Technologies: OpenGL, DirectX 11, DirectX 12.
Platforms: SteamVR, Nvidia CloudXR
Game engines: Unreal Engine, Unity3D
Applications: Blender, Autodesk VRED, Twinmotion, SketchUp Pro, WinCoot
Content platforms: Youtube
File formats: 3D Points File (.pts) / this is the file for LiDAR
The price of the Dimenco SR Pro is 9,990 euros.
Dimenco's technology is also built into the Acer ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition Laptop. It offers a 15.6" (auto)stereoscopic display and is equipped with an 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GPU. Up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 2 TB of storage with the NVMe PCIe SSD are available, cost point .
